3 Dope Chicks with 3 Dope Sets comes to Alberni’s Rainbow Room

Georgia Murray, Kytami, Ashleigh Eymann and hip hop DJ, D Whiz of Victoria, play the Rainbow Room on Feb. 9.

Vancouver Island product Georgia Murray along with Kytami and Ashleigh Eymann are 3 Dope Chicks With 3 Dope Sets and they're coming to Port Alberni on Feb. 9 to the Rainbow Room.

Ridge Road Productions presents “3 Dope Chicks with 3 Dope Sets”, some of the best of B.C.’s up and coming musical talent, at the Rainbow Room in Port Alberni on Thursday, Feb. 9.

Kytami, Georgia Murray and Ashleigh Eymann will be performing their individually unique and dynamic sets live at the Rainbow Room. Doors open at 9 p.m., cover charge is just $10.

Georgia Murray, who grew up in Port McNeill, was recently chosen as one of Canada’s top 8 bands competing for a recording contract and $100,000 on CBC’s Cover Me Canada and just won the 2011 Times Colonist’s “Fan Favourite” music award.

Murray is an engaging and emotional performer and has opened for acts such as KRS One, Talib Kweli, Jurassic 5, K-OS, Shad and The Canadian Tenors among others. She has performed privately for Warren Buffet, Michelle Pfeiffer and William Shatner, sang anthems for numerous NHL and NBA teams and has played many of Victoria and Vancouver’s best live venues with a sound labelled Alternative/Soul.

ET Canada has called her “Canada’s own sweet singing sensation” and she was chosen as The Province’s “Monthly Musical Pick” twice in the last year.

Kytami is a violinist extremist—perhaps Canada’s most diverse and engaging fiddle player. Kytami bounds between classical and fiddle styles and matches them to heavy bass and electronic dance beats, creating an incredibly high energy show that packs dance floors and melts minds.

With her abilities, style and devilish smile, she has won over audience after audience, appearing at most major festivals across Canada and in the Western U.S. as well as performing overseas in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Germany and Dubai. Kytami has appeared on albums by The Swollen Members and has also co-written two albums and toured extensively with the multicultural, award-winning band Delhi 2 Dublin.

Kytami also appeared on CBC’s Cover me Canada with Georgia Murray after being chosen as one of Canada’s top 8 bands.

Ashleigh Eymann is described as “a soul singin’, rap slingin’ multi-instrumentalist and collaborative artist” and one of the fortunate PEAK Performance Project’s Top 20 for 2011. Eymann’s style and expertise has garnered her attention from the who’s who of the BC hip hop scene. She has worked with Jeff Spec, Just B, Ishkan, Moka Only & Fatty Down to name a few.

As a member of the hip-hop collective group, The Current (DJ Murge, Ishkan, JustB), Eymann has performed in Vancouver and across Vancouver Island and has opened for many artists including Jurassic 5, Brother Ali, One Self (DJ Vadim, Yarah Bravo, Blu Rum), and The Beatnuts. Ashleigh has added to her impressive resume and delved into the role of emcee with the Vancouver based hip hop collective INDIGO KIDS while continuing to write her soulful ballads.

D Whiz, Victoria’s own legendary hip hop DJ, will join this trio of female performers at the Rainbow Room. D Whiz has rocked shows alongside the biggest names in the DJ world including Mixmaster Mike, A-Trak (Kanye West), Lil’Jaz (Nelly Furtado), DJ Wax, DJ Cash Money, DJ Jam (Snoop Dogg), Roc Raida and more.

D Whiz has opened for the Beatnuts, Ice T, Blackalicious, Pharcyde, KRS One, Jully Black, Maestro Fresh Wes and Kardinal Offishall to name a few. D Whiz produced and DJ’d many of Victoria’s most popular college and commercial hip hop radio shows alongside his partner Degree One and won numerous remix contests as well as placing 2nd in the Vancouver Island DMC’s. D Whiz also appeared on CBC’s, Cover Me Canada as apart of Georgia Murray’s band and is currently Georgia’s producer and co writer.
